So it must be push the release button and pull the handle and hold to give the EPB chance to relatch.
I tried the manual reset (using a guide I found on here) and could hear the EPB motor working but the cables would not relatch.

I ended up taking the EPB motor off, it was screwed right up and I noticed a small bubble on the g8nd2 relay on the PCB (indicating overheating). Have ordered a new relay and rear discs and pads. Hoping to have all the parts here by this weekend.
